Tucson police are asking the public for help in identifying two people linked to an aggravated assault at a south side Circle K in October.

On Oct. 25 shortly before 11 p.m., a man entered the Circle K at 5680 S. Campbell Avenue and took items and left the store without paying for the items, police said.

Security guards confronted the man outside the store, and the confrontation turned into a struggle. A woman, who was sitting in a silver mini-van, pulled out a handgun and threatened to shoot the guards if they did not release the man, said police. 

The woman then pointed the gun at a guard and pulled the trigger twice, but the gun did not fire, police said.

The man the guards released then climbed into the van and left with the woman, and another man who was a passenger in the van, said police.

A surveillance camera captured video of the man when he was inside the store. He was described as Hispanic and between 20 to 30 years of age. He was about 6 feet 2 inches tall, and weighed between 210 to 230 pounds.

The woman was described as Hispanic and also between 20 to 30 years of age. No further description of the woman was released.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
